Recent Articles: Resident Evil: Retribution
A new trailer has hit for the fifth (and possibly final) live-action Resident Evil film, Resident Evil: Retribution. Director and producer Paul W.S. Anderson keeps churning them out alongside spousal superhero clone (or is it the original?) Alice, who was clearly absent the day the cool character names were handed out, such as Michelle Rodriguez’s Rain Ocampo or Colin Salmon’s James “One” Shade.
But wait, didn’t they, like, totally die in the first film? Indeed, but they are back like a bad case of crabs. The trailer suggests their return is prompted through a mix of false memories in Alice’s very pretty head, and possibly cloning. Other fan favourites returning are Carlos Oliviera, played by the suave Oded Fehr, Sienna Gilroy as Jill Valentine, Boris Kodjoe as Luther West, and Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker.
Maing their live action debut are Resident Evil 4 protagonists Leon Kennedy, played by Johann Urb, and the sexy Ada Wong, played by the amazingly named Bingbing Li. However, their addition will most likely make we wish they had had just made a film version of that game instead of continuing the ridiculous, nonsensical storyline from the last four films.
Expect a barrage of bullets, axes, grenades and other assorted weaponry to come flying at your face in 3D when the film is released on September 14th in North America and Canada. The UK and Australia will have to wait anther two and four weeks respectively to get their Resident Evil on.
Things we’ve learned from the first trailer for this Fall’s Resident Evil: Retribution starring Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Johann Urb, Michelle Rodriguez, and Bingbing Li:
- Sony really wants you to buy a Vita, Sony Tablet, Sony MP3 player, and Sony cell phone as a fake commercial for Sony electronics (with music from The Who and a voiceover from Patrick Stewart) takes up 33 seconds of a teaser trailer that is only 78 seconds long.
- Whoa! Ada Wong is in this movie!
Questions that need answering thanks to the last 45 seconds of the trailer:
- How did Alice and company escape from the cliffhanger at the end of Resident Evil: Afterlife?
- How did Alice take over the White House?
- Why are there dragons flying everywhere?
- How is Michelle Rodriguez’s character even alive?
- Whoa! How awesome is it that Ada Wong in this movie?
Resident Evil: Retribution opens in theaters this Fall in 3D. Though I think the opening fakeout commercial will become a real commercial much sooner than that.
When we last saw Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine, she was leading an Umbrella assault team against Alice, the Redfield siblings and the rest of the main characters of the Resident Evil movieverse. To be fair, she was being brainwashed by the big spider that’s sucking on her chest in the picture above.
According to an update on the actresses’ Twitter account, it looks like she’ll be returning for the currently unnamed fifth film:
RE:5 alert! Training begins! I aim to mostly put less in the big hole on the front of my face than comes out of the little one on my arse.
Our heroes looked fairly screwed at the end of Resident Evil: Afterlife, so I’m mildly curious to see how they’ll survive to have a fifth adventure together.
It’s kind of ironic that the last few Resident Evil films have all had subtitles suggesting the end of the world, as the next movie in the franchise is releasing towards the end of 2012 on September 14.
The untitled Resident Evil 5 will be coming two years after the last one, the shortest wait in between installments ever for the series. It’s no wonder why, as the last outing, Afterlife, exploded at the foreign box office, grossing $236 million overseas, more than the first three films combined.
The film is expected to be in 3D, as was the last one, and currently there are no other movies scheduled for that date. The September window is the same the last three movies have all shared.
